Remarks

Use the CurrentMode property to determine whether the DetailsView control is in edit, insert, or read-only mode. The following table lists the different mode values.

Mode Description
DetailsViewMode.Edit The DetailsView control is in edit mode, which allows the user to update the values of a record.
DetailsViewMode.Insert The DetailsView control is in insert mode, which allows the user to add a new record to the data source.
DetailsViewMode.ReadOnly The DetailsView control is in read-only mode, which is the normal display mode.

This value is normally set automatically by the DetailsView control by when the New, Update, Insert, Delete, or Cancel command button is clicked. You can also programmatically change the mode by using the ChangeMode method.

When the DetailsView control changes modes, the events in the following table are raised. This allows you to create a custom event handler that performs a routine when the event occurs.

Event Description
ModeChanged Occurs when a command button that changes the mode of the DetailsView control is clicked, but after the mode changes.
ModeChanging Occurs when a command button that changes the mode of the DetailsView control is clicked, but before the mode changes.
